When maxillofacial surgery is proposed as a treatment for a patient, the type of osteotomy and its influence on the facial contour is of major interest. To design the optimal surgical plan, 3D image-based planning can be used. However, prediction of soft tissue deformation due to skeletal changes, is rather complex. The soft tissue model needs to(More)
A preoperative planning system for oral implant surgery was developed which takes as input computed tomographies (CT's) of the jaws. Two-dimensional (2-D) reslices of these axial CT slices orthogonal to a curve following the jaw arch are computed and shown together with three-dimensional (3-D) surface rendered models of the bone and computer-aided design(More)
The paper describes a method for automatic detection of colonic polyps, robust enough to be directly applied to low-dose CT colonographic datasets. Polyps are modeled using gray level intensity profiles and extended Gaussian images. Spherical harmonic decompositions ensure an easy comparison between a polyp candidate and a set of polypoid models, found in a(More)
OBJECTIVE Posterior transarticular spine fusion is a surgical procedure used to stabilize the cervical bodies C1 and C2. Currently, spine screws are used most frequently, according to the procedure of Magerl. As the anatomy is rather complex and the view is limited, this procedure has a high risk factor. We present and validate a planning system for(More)
